Reminder: DJ Hero Video Game Drops on Tuesday!

Logo for DJ Hero Game

What surprises me is the scarcity of media coverage in the Fargo-Moorhead area about the next generation of rhythm-based gameplay. With the unbelievable skills developed by teens and tweens playing bass, drums, and guitar (albeit in a simplified form) is amazing. DJ Hero has the potential to create a legion of new DJs.  DJ Joyride had the honor of releasing the preview of the DJ Hero video have in Minot back in early August.

"Watching these kids play the other successful Activision titles like Rock Band will blow your mind," said Joyride. "These gamers skip right past MEDIUM, and HARD modes to destroy their competition on EXPERT MODE. The amount of dexterity and coordination needed to play even a familiar song in EXPERT MODE is very impressive." The demo version of DJ Hero was very limited, with 3 "Mixes" to play and skill level max'ing out at HARD. "I'm still very excited for the game's full release in October."
